Abridged style magical girl hilarity?
I was watching a lot of abridged series on YouTube lately, poking fun of certain anime, and the Sailor Moon Abridged series seems like a fun one to create a roleplay out of. I'll create my own "plot" for this, heavily borrowing stuff from the genre we'll be parodying and maybe throw some Dragon Ball abridged inspired stuff in as well. It could be really funny if, well, enough funny people want to join this. If not then we can do a more serious one with occasional nods to the parody stuff but not make it overbearing. To make the parody version work the best we probably need weird characters, but one or two could be the average joe grounded in reality who points out how crazy the whole situation is, but nobody listens (to comedic effect).
The main plot is that the big bad (we'll never see his face for a while and he'll just be sitting in the darkness most of the time) is commanding a brother/sister team of evil doers who're trying to help him take over the world by sending out monster minions to do their dirty work. Their main goal to accomplish this feat is to steal away the 12 Crystals of Power; Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Violet, Pink, White, Black, Bronze, Silver, Gold. These crystals, when in the hands of their destined owners (all of them girls besides Bronze, Silver, and Gold), transforms her (or him) into a super powered magical girl (or guy. Don't worry. They don't need to wear frilly outfits...unless you want to). The crystal itself can transform into a cute and cuddly mascot creature. An example is I create a guy who has possession of the bronze crystal. I'll come up with his character and what the bronze crystal mascot character will be like, role playing as both of them unless you allow someone else to do so. To be funny, maybe the guy is timid/kind but the cute looking mascot is some evil/loud jerk who pranks him, but nobody believes it's the mascot doing all that bad stuff. Not all of the people who have the Crystals of Power are good, but some of us will form a team (or multiple teams). Also, while these magical girls/guys have the potential to be the most powerful humans in the galaxy, you can have magical powers otherwise, be a monster, or whatever. However, like the Dragon Ball abridged, you'd be like a Yamcha to our super sayans after our powers start to upgrade, or at best a Piccolo.
A possibility for the parody or serious version, although it's kind of parodying super saiyans now that I remember it right but I also have used it seriously, is that the magical girls/guys have different suit levels. Each gets more powerful but using up more energy to transform and maintain the transformation. The first/weakest suit would be like a standard magical girl uniform with the skirt and such, then the next powerful transformation could be a cooler looking version with a dress instead or something, then the third suit level would be a suit design totally unique to them that looks super cool and imposing. It's very hard to work their way up to the third suit level. Another possibility that would only work for the parody version is something that gets us back to life, like a Dragon Ball Parody, but it's a rainbow colored mascot character that grants wishes when all the Crystals of Power are joined. That way we can blow up an entire city, die in dark humor ways, but get back to life so we don't have to worry about it.
So what do you think? Should we make this into a parody or be more serious? If this gets off the ground then I might be Pink, the supposed leader. She seems innocent enough at first but has occassional morbid, sadist, or other unpleasent tendencies that come out of the blue.
